Pastor Norman Ramsey of Charlottesville, VA was approached by one of his church members and challenged about his excessive talking.
And he turned it around for good. He broke the Guiness record for ‘The World’s Longest Sermon and half that title for about two weeks.
Norman is a unique pastor, performer, author and songwriter. His desire is to make the grace and joy of Jesus as unavoidable as possible. This desire has led him to minister throughout the United States, Central and South America, Africa, and Asia.
He is the author of four books: Moving at the Speed of Grace, More than Breathing, A Nation Pierced and Daddy’s Little Book of Wisdom. He has five musical recordings: Near to the Heart of God, Apprentice, The Colors of Grace, Hymned in by Grace, and Waking Up to Grace.
NY Times Bestselling author and finance guru, Dave Ramsey (No relation) described Norman’s ministry as “incredible”. “His mixing of song, wisdom, and humor really had an impact.”
Norman is married to Karen and they have four adult children and now, five grandchildren. They live near Staunton, VA.
